i went to middle school once and cursed the devil back to hell after inadvertently letting him out and i can’t remember why i started this post.
Looking back on my middle school years I am absolutely certain there was something wrong with me. You know, other than being in that awkward tween stage.
That was the first time my mom let me do my hair myself after I begged and pleaded. It wasn’t pretty. My 6th grade year book picture makes my insides scratchy.
I’m sorry, Mom, for the hair thing. You were right, that whole growing my bangs out faze was the wrong thing to do at that time. And then the whole cut my hair and perm it like a poodle…
You were even more right about that. But you were so good about it. You amaze me.
I believed, when I was about 10 or so, that sticking my middle finger up meant I was cursing God. Like I said, I had issues. I don’t know where this belief came from, or why I considered what meant cursing God at all, but I was sure of it and I told my sister and her BFF, April, about it. And together the three of us cleverly decided that sticking our middle finger down towards the ground would equal cursing the devil (do you remember this, Carrie?). Because, you know, the devil lives in the ground and I know this first hand because Laurie told me in kindergarten and then we had a pool put in our backyard and after the guys dug the hole for it I was sure I saw the devil clawing his way out that night when I looked out my mom and dad’s bedroom window.
And although I can’t remember where I was going with this post, which seems to be happening a lot lately, you can now rest assured that, even though the pool digger guys let the devil out of the ground when they dug our pool and it was partly my fault because I really wanted the pool, April, Carrie, and I cursed the little firey sucker back to hell with our middle fingers. I guess we thought they were like superpowers or something.
And people think homeschooled kids are weird…
So all is well there. And if I remember what I was writing this post for, I did have an objective originally, I’ll do another post about it later. It was probably awesome and you guys are all missing out on awesomeness now.
